Milan is now the center of attention for tourists from all around the world, even just because this year it hosts EXPO, a new input for the city that witnessed the creation of new places and initiative to live in a different way, even a classic of the Milan experience: the aperitivo. The warm weather forces us to enjoy it rigorously outdoor. Here the 5 new places where the TBS team stops for a drink after the office. See you there!
La Terrazza de La Triennale. Not just art: the historic Milanese museum has in fact recently opened also a restaurant with breathtaking view embracing part of the historic center uniting the old and new Milan.
Address: Viale Emilio Alemagna , 6
TBS ♥ The buffet is not the traditional “all you can eat” but this place is worth a try even just for the atmosphere: it seems to be suspended on the city!
Tommy Garden. Inaugurated at the beginning of June, is located in the déhor around the Tommy Hilfiger boutique in Piazza Oberdan, transformed in a true happy haven where to take shelter from traffic during the summer months. The garden is American like most of the cocktails, while the catering is strictly Italian –taralli and michetta bread are the protagonists. Open all day, on mornings and afternoons you’ll find books and special exhibitions, while on Tuesday and Thursday nights from 6PM the space comes alive with a DJ set and live performances for your American aperitivo .
Address: Piazza Oberdan 2/A.
TBS ♥ Shopping + drinks? Perfect combination!
Al Cortile. A temporary restaurant opened only for the 6 months of Expo, has a bio concept and a direct approach to cooking. Guests will be able to see the preparation of the dishes created by armies lead by starred chefs, asking them questions and details on the recipes. The surroundings are also worth mentioning: an industrialized garden decorated by very peculiar objects created by artists, young architects and designers.
Address: Via Giovenale, 7
TBS ♥ The Friday night’s gourmet tapas are to be tried with top quality cocktails. Check out the schedule on the website to know their weekly menu! Open from Friday to Sunday.
Mercato Metropolitano. All genuine, fresh and quality produce coexist in one place; this is briefly the idea behind this large space – partially indoor and partially outdoor – where you can, not only buy products directly from the farmer, but also taste regional and exotic specialties, from the sandwich with Tuscan lampredotto to Japanese okonomiyaki .
Address: Via Valenza, 2
TBS ♥ The location is really special, just a few steps from the crowded Navigli. It hosts an outdoor movie theater for those who would like to continue the evening staying cool!
Casello Giallo. A secret garden where time stops among lavender, abandoned railway tracks and a nice iced beer: it’s Casello Giallo, a recycled area in the old station of Porta Genova, that opened during the Salone del Mobile that already won a piece of the heart of the “easiest” Milan. The menu includes a selection of beers and cocktails and the participation of 4 different restaurants that collaborate with this place offering a variety of options for all tastes satisfying even the biggest appetites.
Address: via Savona 5/A
TBS ♥ Their “green sitting service”: when leaving for the holidays you can bring your plants and they will take care of them for you!
